Lil Baby's concert in Birmingham, Ala. erupted in chaos when gun fire popped off the side of the stage and sent the rapper -- and much of the audience -- running for safety.

On Sunday night, Lil Baby, a.k.a. Dominique Armani Jones, was in the midst of "My Dawg" at Birmingham's Bill Harris Arena when a backstage altercation made its way to the stage during his performance, according to AL.com. Two men suddenly appear on the stage in the middle of the song, and appear to be looking for a way out before gun shots follow. As seen in several videos that captured the scene as it unfolded, Lil Baby, upon realizing what was happening, made a swift exit as the crowd caught on and immediately tried to do the same. (Disclaimer: the following video features gun shots.)

Local authorities confirmed to WVTM reporter Jon Paepcke that one person was sent to Birmingham's UAB hospital with life-threatening injuries. (Billboard has reached out to Lil Baby's representative for comment.)
